Reducing Load Times With Non-Volatile Memory Express SSDs

Maingear Computers creates some of the fastest gaming PCs available. In a recent test, the non-volatile memory express (NVMe) SSD, the Samsung 960 Pro, handily beat a hard disk drive system in loading speed. “We choose Samsung because Samsung ships the best SSDs on the planet,” says Wallace Santos, CEO of Maingear Computers.

Enterprise storage solutions like the Samsung 960 Pro deliver 4.5 times faster random read performance compared to SATA SSDs, and much better performance than HDDs. With capacities up to two terabytes, the 960 Pro non-volatile memory express drives offer enough capacity for even large games, along with incredible performance: up to 3,500 Megabytes/sec on reads, and 2,100 Megabytes/sec for writes.

“The 960 Series NVMe drives are a must-have these days for a high-end PC system. When your components in a PC are all driving to be the fastest possible, you can’t be bottlenecked by the storage device in the PC. The new 960 series is a great solution for those types of systems that really require the best performance,” explains Richard Leonarz, director of product marketing for Samsung Business.
